Method:Flocking

Usage: short haired animals or areas where short hair is needed.
This is a very beautiful and realistic application though it should be carefully considered if the intended animal replica or puppet that may be vulnerable to wear and tear.
The best result are produced when the flocking is applied to foam latex. It is longer lasting on this a softer surface. Not recommended for use with silicone.

This application uses an “electrostatic flocking gun.” An electrostatic charge is generated which propels the fibers onto the adhesive coated surface. This happens at a high velocity allowing the fibers to imbed into the adhesive at right angles. Once this has “cured” the fibers can be brushed into a natural direction.

This method allows for a very natural result as combinations of different lengths and shades can be mixed together.
